Man , why are things so expensive where I live? It's not fair. Gas is also really expensive here, even though we have refinieries nearby and all. What gives!?

Wow, somebody actually has me beat!! I'm in overpriced Connecticut. $425 for pasture board with shelter, but that's with plenty of food & hay, 3 riding rings including indoor and trails.

I pay $300 a month for board. That includes a lot.

He gets brought into the lower barn 3x a day to be fed in a stall. That includes 15lbs of feed a day, plus consistent round bales being put out. I get 2 arena's, a large outdoor and a large indoor. 200 acres of trails to ride on.

I also can have staff take care of medical things when I cannot be there to do so. Thrush treatments, rain rot treatments, foot soaking for abscesses, etc, etc - whichever it is that he needs. The staff are wonderful and the barn/facility is amazing. We really appreciate the BO very much - she goes above and beyond her call of duty without penny pinching her boarders.

Also, I do not have to be there for Vet appointments or Farrier. I just let the BO know what needs to be done, and he's put on the list. The barn pays for the Farrier and/or the Vet, and then I get that charge on my next months bill.

I LOVE my barn!

Great thread! It's interesting, hearing what others pay in different areas and what it includes...

I'm right off the coast of North Carolina and have an amazing barn. My two boys are pasture boarded, with a round bale always accessible, 20 lbs of grain/day for the both of them, blanketing (if needed), and holding for vet/farrier. Also included is free trailer parking, use of the large outdoor arena, the dressage arena, over 100 acres of trails, and 2 round pens. I pay $400/month total. Amazing deal- back in Chicago, basic board was $900. I'm staying here!

Wow! $1025! Though it is probably well worth it for the gorgeous scenery and trails in NY

I'm from Alberta Canada. My horses are at two places only fifteen minutes apart. Icha's at a private barn, no indoor arena, pasture board. His blankets are switched for me. He comes into the barn very rarely, only if the weather is bad. I help out there and pay 200/month.
My other horse is at a full service dressage barn. About 625 a month for me there. Extras I pay for are beetpulp and hay cubes. 10 hour individual turnout. Hay fed four times a day, grain twice. Stalls picked twice daily. I usually pay about 450 and work 10-12 hours a month there. Lessons not included.

I don't own a horse where I live since the board for one (even rough) is generally more than what people pay for their mortgage! Rough board at the barn I help out at (I know the owner) starts at $700 and goes up from there- no pasture boarding but they have turnout and there is no arena. That's a private barn and not a full facility (basically someone's backyard.)

My friend rides at a barn that is $915 a month for full board, grass turnout (instead of dirt which is cheaper and involves a smaller stall that isn't as nice,) and access to an indoor wash stall. If you want your horse to get hay at night you get charged extra; if your horse gets grain you get charged extra; if you don't take care of your horses on holidays you get charged extra; if you don't turn your own horses out on holidays you get charged extra. If they do anything with your tack or the horse that isn't included in boarding fees (exercising your horse, bathing/washing/tacking up, etc,) you get charged extra.

Lessons are not included- outside trainers come to the barn.

Some of the other facilities are $790 per month for full board unless you want turn out which is $60 more a month.

IF you are lucky you can get a very ROUGH turn-out in someone's backyard- no amenities, paying for your own food/shavings/hay/EVERYTHING else- is usually $400-500. A very small area if you are lucky and its not in a good area of Long Island will sometimes go for $200-300- but they generally involve driving for a few hours out to Eastern Suffolk where there aren't as many people, it isn't as developed, and involves at LEAST an hour or two worth of driving (each direction- total of 2-4 hrs driving to the barn daily) depending on how far out you go!

I'm on Long Island in NY.
